AllMusic Review by

Any band featuring Jesse Jay Harris, a guitar-picking son of Flying Burrito Brothers guitarist Greg Harris, knows its oats, and dad himself and bassist brother Graham still join in. Move over, Carter Family! As usual, songwriter/vocalist/guitarist Mark Adams plays a key role, although once again the star is actually the indelible north wind tumbleweed cry of Mike Witcher's lap steel all over this doggone sucker, killing you time after time alongside the Dobro, fiddle, and keyboards. Adams and the Harrises junior and senior adore traditionalist (meaning timeless) bluesy country-rock, fersure, with tributes to a loyal dog, building supers, a trusty gin mill, and, in good Waylon Jennings-like form, loathing the office life.
